[image]AD-1 multiple exposure showing wing sweep - NASA/Dryden Flight Research Center (NASA-DFRC)
This photograph is a multiple exposure showing the AD-1 aircraft with its wing swept at different angles between zero and 60 degrees. The Ames-Dryden-1 (AD-1) aircraft was designed to investigate the concept of an oblique (pivoting) wing. The wing could be rotated on its center pivot, so that it could be set at its most efficient angle for the speed at which the aircraft was flying. NASA Ames Research Center Aeronautical Engineer Robert T...

[image]AD-1 in flight - NASA/Dryden Flight Research Center (NASA-DFRC)
This photograph shows the AD-1 aircraft in low-speed flight. The pivoting wing was intended to increase the fuel economy of a supersonic aircraft. The Ames-Dryden-1 (AD-1) aircraft was designed to investigate the concept of an oblique (pivoting) wing. The wing could be rotated on its center pivot, so that it could be set at its most efficient angle for the speed at which the aircraft was flying. NASA Ames Research Center Aeronautical Engineer Robert T...

[image]AD-1 cockpit and instrument panel - NASA/Dryden Flight Research Center (NASA-DFRC)
This is a photo of the cockpit and instrument panel of the AD-1 aircraft. Due to the small size of the AD-1, instrumentation was limited and the cockpit was cramped. The Ames-Dryden-1 (AD-1) aircraft was designed to investigate the concept of an oblique (pivoting) wing. The wing could be rotated on its center pivot, so that it could be set at its most efficient angle for the speed at which the aircraft was flying...

[image]AD-1 in flight at 60 degree wing sweep - NASA/Dryden Flight Research Center (NASA-DFRC)
This is a photograph from above of the AD-1 aircraft in flight with its wing swept at 60 degrees. This was the maximum sweep angle for the oblique wing. The Ames-Dryden-1 (AD-1) aircraft was designed to investigate the concept of an oblique (pivoting) wing. The wing could be rotated on its center pivot, so that it could be set at its most efficient angle for the speed at which the aircraft was flying...

[image]AD-1 in flight - photo from below - NASA/Dryden Flight Research Center (NASA-DFRC)
This is a photograph taken from below the AD-1 aircraft while it was in flight with its wing swept. Visible are the twin jet engines that powered the aircraft and the fixed landing gear. The Ames-Dryden-1 (AD-1) aircraft was designed to investigate the concept of an oblique (pivoting) wing. The wing could be rotated on its center pivot, so that it could be set at its most efficient angle for the speed at which the aircraft was flying...

[image]AD-1 in flight at 60 degree wing sweep - NASA/Dryden Flight Research Center (NASA-DFRC)
This is a photo from above of the AD-1 aircraft in flight with its wing swept at 60 degrees, the maximum sweep angle. The Ames-Dryden-1 (AD-1) aircraft was designed to investigate the concept of an oblique (pivoting) wing. The wing could be rotated on its center pivot, so that it could be set at its most efficient angle for the speed at which the aircraft was flying.

[image]Thomas C. McMurtry - NASA/Dryden Flight Research Center (NASA-DFRC)
Thomas C. McMurtry in November 1982. He graduated in June 1957 from the University of Notre Dame with a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering. McMurtry had been part of the university's Navy ROTC program, and after graduation he joined the Navy as a pilot. Before retiring from the Navy in 1964 as a Lieutenant, he graduated from the U.S. Navy Test Pilot School, and had flown such aircraft as the F9F, A3D, A4D, F3D, F-8, A-6, and S-2...

[image]F-15 RPRV Spin Research Vehicle (SRV) attached to B-52 pylon - NASA/Dryden Flight Research Center (NASA-DFRC)
In this ground photo, one of the F-15 RPRV/SRVs is shown on the same pylon used for the X-15 and lifting body flights. The vehicle was a 3/8 scale model of the F-15 aircraft, and was designed for stall and spin research. The cost was $250,000 for each RPRV versus $6.8 million for an actual F-15. After being released from the B-52, the unpowered vehicle was flown by pilots on the ground, including Einar K...

[image]AD-1 with research pilot Richard E. Gray - NASA/Dryden Flight Research Center (NASA-DFRC)
Standing in front of the AD-1 Oblique Wing research aircraft is research pilot Richard E. Gray. Richard E. Gray joined National Aeronautics and Space Administration's Johnson Space Center, Houston, Texas, in November 1978, as an aerospace research pilot. In November 1981, Dick joined the NASA's Ames-Dryden Flight Research Facility, Edwards, California, as a research pilot. Dick was a former Co-op at the NASA Flight Research Center (a previous name of the Ames-Dryden Flight Research Facility), se...
